I can't believe it, you guys! A whole week without cigs today!!! Thank you SO much for all of your support. It's still been rough, but I felt like yesterday was a turning point. It was hard, but not totally unbearable every second of every day. There were actual moments of, dare I say, serenity? Don't get me wrong-still struggle like hell. Almost slipped tonight. I grabbed my friend's pack of smokes (Marlboro Lights-the old flame), and he nearly tackled me. Thank God for true friends, right!? But, now I'm SO grateful I didn't smoke. Ew, what a wretched feeling that would've been. Caught in the grip of that monster, and having to start all over again with that nasty shame and guilt. YUCK! I would've felt like I let you guys down, too. I'm hoping I'll meet someone on here who is going through day one and needs to know it's possible to make it to day 7, ya know!? Thanks for everything! Stay strong-I'm right here in the trenches with you all! One Day At A Time!
